See the ice avalanche of Mars – Axios



A photo taken in May by NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter shows an avalanche of ice falling on the planet.

What they hear: "Every spring, the sun shines on the side of a pile of layers at the North Pole of Mars, known as the North Polar Layer Deposits. The heat destabilizes the ice and the blocks crumble," NASA says in an image description.

  • "When they reach the bottom at a height of more than 500 meters above the rock, the blocks launch a cloud of dust."

    Bottom line: A satellite fleet orbiting Mars allows us to see the changing face of the Red Planet all year long, and sometimes its surface looks remarkably similar to Earth.
